At its Next@Acer event in New York City, Acer unveiled a striking new display that will definitely pique the interest of many video editors. And really, it should, because the 31.5" ProDesign monitor was designed with image editors in mind, including photographers, graphic designers, and video/film editors.
The LCD display measures in at 31.5" and is capable of 550 nits at 4K resolution—translation: big, bright, clear screen. "Enhanced color gamut" supports 130% of the sRGB and 95% of the DCI-P3 color spaces in 8 bits. It has a response time of 4 milliseconds with a 100 million to 1 contrast ratio.
When it comes to connectivity, Acer's new display includes two HDMI 2.0 ports, audio out, a DisplayPort 1.2, a USB 3.1 Type C input, and four USB 3.1 Type C outputs that are not only suitable for peripherals, but are capable of power delivery of up to 85W—a great feature because, as AppleInsider says,
The inclusion of USB-C as the connection method, plus supplying 85W of power makes it one of the only monitors available that will keep a 2016 15-inch MacBook Pro fully charged while in use.
